TMBA418: The Services Problem

TMBA418: The Services Problem post image

Last week, Dan and Ian spoke to Greg Gerber on this podcast.

During that conversation, Greg mentioned that he had recently interacted with many listeners of this show, and that a large portion of them owned services businesses.

He also spoke about how he believed that those entrepreneurs were struggling to take the next step in their business.

This insight into the audience of the show got our hosts thinking. What if they could help those entrepreneurs take that next step?

On this week's episode, Dan and Ian will be talking at great length about what "The Services Problem" is, as well as sharing three strategies that entrepreneurs with these types of businesses can employ in order to solve it.

TMBA417: The Gift

Dan and Ian have shared many stories on this show about luck, serendipity, and being in the right place at the right time.

But what if that luck isn't totally random?

Today's episode is about entrepreneurs (and specifically listeners of this show) connecting to help each other out on their entrepreneurial journey.

It begins with Greg Gerber, who made a post in our private membership forum The Dynamite Circle offering to give one lucky entrepreneur an all-expenses paid trip to our annual conference in Bangkok, DC BKK.

The recipient of that gift was Madeleine Lambert. Madeleine started a content marketing business called Content Refined last year.

She and Greg have joined us today to share the story of Greg's gift and how Madeline's business has grown to $50,000 in monthly recurring revenue since she received it.

TMBA416: Entrepreneurship: Don’t Tell Your Parents

The theme of today's show is navigating the social pressures that so many of us feel from friends, family, and colleagues.

Dan and Ian are certainly familiar with these feelings, and today's guest is no stranger to them either.

Vincent Nguyen is the founder of Growth Ninja, a performance-based Facebook ads company. You may remember Vincent from an episode we published a few years ago about apprenticeships.

Vincent has definitely paid his dues in the world of entrepreneurship, having apprenticed with Empire Flippers before starting Growth Ninja in 2015, all the while hiding the fact that he dropped out of college from his immediate family.

This episode is a conversation about the tough decisions that many entrepreneurs are forced to make, what it means to sacrifice relationships, and what it really takes to get started in the world of entrepreneurship.

Business Class in London

Business Class in London post image

I've said for a while now: it’s better to travel to a more obscure location where you know people than to travel to a world-class destination where you know no-one. But, in the case of London, I’m say I am lucky enough to say that I've had both. I’ve spend the last 3 weeks here...
